I'm salvaging parts from an old bike.
The crankset looks okay, and would be an upgrade for my wife's bike which is showing its age. But it's got a label on it: "Shimano IG chain only".
A search tells me this is a part of the Shimano "Integrated Glide" system.
Since I won't be using any other IG parts (the other parts of the drivetrain would actually be Shimano Deore DX) are the crankset and chainrings actually incompatible with standard chains?
